Sometimes it seems the Lord doesn’t speak to us at the very times we feel we need to hear Him most. When we are trying to handle a troublesome situation, we just don’t always perceive Him speaking. The problem is that our emotions can speak louder than His whispers, but even then He doesn’t leave us without hope or direction. He loves us and is always trying to communicate. He gives us dreams as one of the ways He continues to stand at the door of our hearts and knock to get our attention.
For God does speak—now one way, now another—though man may not perceive it (Job 33:14 NIV).
He does speak. The Bible is a story of God’s communication with mankind. Jesus said in John 10:27, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”
The most common topic He addresses in dreams is our heart issues, those things that are troubling us or that are against His laws or will for our lives. Before we have a dream, He first tugs on our hearts at the moment we are dealing with a tough situation, communicating, “Don’t do this, don’t think this way, let it go, etc.” Sometimes people call this experience “a check in the spirit,” or a feeling of conviction. He speaks to us about anything that causes concern for us or for Him; however, it’s not easy to hear Him or perceive conviction when our emotions are high.
If we miss His first attempt to get our attention, He tries it a different way—we often are given a dream: in a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men as they slumber in their beds, then he opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction (Job 33:15-16).
According to these verses in Job, He's always talking: first in whispers and tugs, next in dreams.
So the next time you feel He isn't talking when you desperately need to hear Him, pay attention to, first, those little tugs at your heart and next, your dreams.
